Dr. Caroline Krivuzoff-Sanderson DMD

Dr. Caroline was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. After completing seven years of study at the University of Saskatchewan, she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in May of 1989. Upon graduation, she moved to Red Deer, Alberta, to begin her career in Dentistry. Over the years, she has maintained her practice with honesty and integrity and has been proud to see her family of patients continue to grow. Dr. Caroline considers herself very fortunate to work with such wonderful patients here in Central Alberta who support her and her practice.

Dr. Caroline believes in, and is committed to continuing her education to provide you with the techniques and materials to make your dental experience the most positive and satisfying you have ever received. Her desire to help her patients achieve health is what continues to fuel her passion for Dentistry. Beyond her dental degree, Dr. Caroline has further studied all aspects of general dentistry. She looks forward to providing her patients with dental care that is preventive in nature, evidence-based, and minimally-invasive at every opportunity.

One of Dr. Caroline's greatest desires is to offer her dental services to those patients who have limited or no access to dental care. She volunteers her time at the Dental Outreach of Red Deer (DOoR) clinic in Red Deer, and is pursuing opportunities to complete dental mission trips. She, along with four of the team are excited to be heading to Guatemala in February 2018.

In her time away from the office, Dr. Caroline enjoys many varied outdoor pursuits, sports and travelling. She is a theatre- and movie-lover, budding Flamenco dancer, calligrapher, mom to her fur baby “Sunny”, and student of languages, most recently Russian. You may also find her cheering on her “Roughriders”!


Dr. Caroline is married to her husband Scott, and alongside him, enjoys balance in her life in the company of family, good friends, and the community at large.

DR. ROBERT KURIO DDS, BSc.

Dr. Robert was born and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta. He moved to Red Deer to play volleyball for the Red Deer College Kings, and spent two years with the Kings while studying general science. It was during this time that Dr. Robert fell in love with the city and the people of Red Deer. He returned to his hometown to complete his Bachelor of Science in Biology before attending the University of Alberta's School of Dentistry.

Dr. Robert enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and loves working with his patients to maintain the highest standards of oral health. As a former member of the SHINE Dental Clinic, a charity organization focusing on providing dental care to under-serviced youth in downtown Edmonton, Dr. Robert has developed a special interest in working with children and is looking forward to continuing to do so in Red Deer.

Dr. Robert cites the people and their strong sense of community as his main incentive to call Red Deer home once again. Outside of the office, you will be able to spot him down at the Riverbend Golf Course or swimming lanes at the Dawe Community Center. As an aficionado of the outdoors, physical activity and adventure, he also loves to get away to the mountains or to explore what the rest of Canada and the world have to offer.

Being an Oilers fan, Dr. Robert often refers to a quote from new coach Todd McLellan that states: "If you aren't constantly moving forward, you are falling behind". He places a great importance on continuing education and is looking forward to constantly striving to improve the ways in which he can better serve the people of Red Deer.
